Dangal is not Aamir Khan’s first film that will release in China. The actor also sold the digital rights of Dangal to Netflix India for a whopping Rs 20 crore. Up next, he is eyeing another neighbouring country – China. The film was widely screened in the country. Aamir Khan might have refused to screen his blockbuster film Dangal in Pakistan without India’s national anthem, but he isn’t bothered. Aamir Khan and Nitesh Tiwari will promote the movie in China too. On the work front, Aamir Khan will next be seen in Thugs of Hindostan co-starring Amitabh Bachchan. After becoming the highest grossing Hindi film ever with a collection of Rs 387.38 crore, Dangal is now gearing up to sweep through the Chinese theatres too. Aamir Khan broke his own record by overthrowing PK’s collection of Rs 340.8 crore. Some reports even suggest that Chinese universities suggested the inclusion of 3 Idiots in coursework. They not only opened there, but are also the top 3 highest grossing Indian films in that country. If all this wasn’t enough, Dangal will now release in China on May 5. This is not Aamir’s first film that will release in China. The movie collected Rs 140 crore surpassing previous records held by 3 Idiots and Dhoom 3. It all started with Aamir Khan’s film 3 Idiots that gained huge popularity in China. Aamir also enjoys a huge fan following in the country. His PK, 3 Idiots and Dhoom 3 have already done that. PK was released on 4000 screens. Also Read: Begum Jaan audience reaction: Vidya Balan film receives mixed reviews, but Chunkey Pandey surprises
